Hi, I’m Jerry Del Valle. I’m from Hyde Park, Massachusetts and I’m a senior stylist at SalonCapri’s Newton location.
How many years have you been a part of the SalonCapri team?
I’ve been with the SalonCapri family for 10 years!
Where did you study previously?
Before SalonCapri, I studied at the L’Oréal Professional Soho Academy in NYC.
What do you specialize in?
With many years of experience under my belt, I’m confident cutting hair of all lengths, for both male and female clients. My specialty at SalonCapri is hair straightening.
What inspired you to become a stylist?
As a kid, I was known as the artistic and creative one in the family. I decided to harness those abilities and started out by cutting the hair of my friends and family and look where I am now!
Which favorite hair care product has been in constant rotation for you behind the chair?
I love Kérastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique. It nourishes the hair and improves straightening performance – my specialty!
Which celeb haircut and/or color are you loving right now and why?
I love Jennifer Lawrence’s pixie cut. She carries the choppy, textured shape so well! I love styles that give off a cool and confident vibe but still retain a soft femininity.
What are your favorite hair colors or style trends right now?
Definitely a men’s cut with a hard part comb over. It’s a classic look that can transform any any man in to a sophisticated gentleman.
What advice would you give a client who wants to try something new or different with their hair?
Start small! I would suggest subtle changes at first to help build the confidence needed to pull off an entirely new look.
What hair products should everyone have in their arsenal at home?
Shu Uemura’s Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Oil is the perfect product to add to your daily regime! This lightweight oil rebalances moisture levels, supplies softness and shine, and provides UV protection. A definite must-have all around cure-all product!
